Amazonians have the opportunity to fulfil their potential, whether developing new skills for their job, training for new opportunities within the company or pursuing what they are passionate about outside of Amazon through Career Choice, an innovative programme that provides fulfilment centre employees funding for adult education, offering to pre-pay 95% of tuition fees.
All of this means that we are the employer of choice for thousands of people across 12 fulfilment centres in the UK.
I Found the Right Place, is a collection of stories from Amazon associates working in fulfillment centres across the UK, sharing their thoughts and feelings about why Amazon is the right place for them.
From associates handling customer orders, to those in HR and IT roles, these Amazonians have a passion for delivering for customers, for developing new skills, and for forming new friendships.
More than 500 people put pen to paper with a range of stories to tell. From chance meetings of husbands and wives, to incredible team work and new friendships; others shared the pride and satisfaction they feel fulfiling customer orders or their thanks for Amazon benefits and the difference this has made to their life.
At each of our fulfilment centres a panel of judges chose one standout story that would take the winner all the way to the US.
We found that what all these people had in common was that like true Amazonians they ‘work hard, have fun and make history’ – here we proudly share their personal stories and a video of their personal highlights from their visit to Amazon’s headquarters in Seattle.
